Photograph Of Asha and Rupa Toprani At Refugee Camp

Asha Toprani left Uganda in November 1972 with her new born daughter Rupa. They traveled to the UK without Surendra, Asha's husband and Rupa's father, because of bureaucratic restrictions that rendered him stateless, while Asha was a British subject. Upon their arrival to the UK, Asha and Rupa were sent to the Ugandan Resettlement Camp in Newberry UK. Asha and Rupa later joined Surendra in the US where he had been resettled.
